Step Inside of the Bemis Center for Two Captivating Art Exhibits in One Location

Have you been curious to explore an array of beautiful artwork? Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts invites the public to two new solo exhibitions illustrating the allusive and enigmatic nature of sound and form, Alison O’Daniel: Heavy Air and Lui Shtini: Tempos, on view through June 15, 2019.

Through collaborations with composers and musicians as well as the experiences of deaf and hard of hearing friends regarding sound, O’Daniel’s work aims at building a visual, aural, and haptic vocabulary as a means of storytelling. In Heavy Air, O’Daniel continues her investigations into what it means to not have full access to sound as well as transfer this experience to a hearing audience. This exhibition places itself at the center of these explorations—highlighting the ambient sounds that literally hang in the air.

Lui Shtini’s process translates abstracted thoughts into two-dimensional forms, birthing the intangible. In Tempos, Shtini presents a range of paintings and drawings created over the past four years. The 25 works are installed in the galleries with their peers—grouped together by series. Each of Shtini’s works—both drawings and paintings—are shrouded in a layer of mystery, yet the work is full of hints.

Located in the historic Old Market district, Bemis Center serves a critical role in the presentation and understanding of contemporary art, bridging the community of Omaha to a global discourse surrounding cultural production today. These exhibits are free and open to the public. Don’t miss out!
